Tracking...

I had hoped to wait until the link was functional, but I believe that this is probably where you can go to track my progress in the race tomorrow if you have the urge and/or are an Internet addict--try bib #1578 or else just Davidson...

Delightful tri-blogger dinner meet-up just now, about which more anon (with a picture!).

When I checked my bike in to the race area earlier today, I suddenly stopped feeling insanely nervous and started to feel excited--this is just a regular old human endeavour, not a feat of magic! Some good Disney sightseeing, too, round the edges.

On the debit side, I am coming down with a cold--telltale minor sore throat last night, which gave me some extremely anxious hours before I realized that out of a race in which several thousand people are competing, some considerable number of them probably are coming down with colds?

(If my mother is reading this at home, don't worry, it's not a bad one! I am fully functional and will stop racing if that situation changes at any point!)

Swim wave starts at 7:03, so I will hope to finish around 2. Wish me luck!

I'm sure you're out of the water by now! But best of luck anyway!

I'm guessing you're almost done with the bike leg, hurray! 2 out of 3 done, one of which was the hardest...it's probably mostly somewhat all downhill from here! Yay! You're amazing!

Quick note, more tomorrow: thanks, everyone! I did indeed finish--had to walk the half-marathon, though, it was about 95 degrees and incredibly humid and sunny, clearly more sensible! V. cheerful...

Jenny D! You were awesome!!!! That was an incredibly tough run (now I know what it is like to be a steamed vegetable)!!!! Picking that as a first triathlon is definately a "reach" goal and you hammered it!! Well Done !!!!! I'm impressed and I don't hand out praise freely - you can confirm that with thedotBigun! It was a pleasure to meet you and keep up the good work!

Ah, I figured you must have walked (multiplying and dividing for mph), and hoped it was by choice, not calamity. 95? My god! Congratulations!!!!!!!!
